Diehard fisherman Lenny Rudow showed up at the Annapolis Sailboat Show and found this boat, which he thought was pretty cool: a low transom for gaffing fish, and a huge fishbox. Of course, it was missing a few things, like an outboard and rod holders... because Lenny had stumbled onto a racing sailboat. The Bavaria B/One, designed by Farr Yacht Design, is a trailerable one design racing sailboat that weighs only 2,200 pounds. Ninety boats have already been built in only three and a half months.

I set Lenny straight on a few other things, too. For one, that fishbox? It's really a cuddy cabin. And that shiny thing that keeps getting in his way? It's called a "boom."
